Objectives, Effective Programs, and Pupil Achievement in the Area of Reading Instruction.
Julius, Patsy F.
The purposes of this study were to develop criteria for effective reading programs and objectives, to determine the correlation between the quality of the objectives written and the quality of the reading program characteristics of Title I funded reading projects in West Virginia for 1966-75, to determine the correlation between the quality of the written objectives and pupil achievement for fiscal years 1973 and 1974, and to determine the correlation between the quality of the reading programs described and pupil achievement for fiscal years 1973 and 1974. A secondary purpose was to develop recommendations concerning the writing of objectives and effective reading programs. Major findings revealed no significant correlation between the assigned quality of objectives and program characteristics for the reading element of the Title I proposals for 1966-75, except in fiscal year 1973, and no significant correlation between the assigned quality of objectives and program characteristics with pupil achievement for fiscal years 1973 and 1974. The seven conclusions of this study are presented and discussed in detail. (Author/RB)
